Hello lovely IMBBians,
Before I started writing for IMBB, hitting the pan of my pressed powder was a sad feeling (just pressed powder; not blushes or eyeshadows as I could never finish even one-tenth of the quantity!!!!). But things have changed now, ever since I have been writing for IMBB. Now, hitting a pan usually means that it’s time to try a new product, time to write a new product review, and add one more opinion on IMBB. I have always liked bareMinerals as a brand and that’s mainly because of the ingredients list. This time, I laid my hands on bareMinerals Ready Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Read on to know more about this pressed powder 🙂

My Experience with bareMinerals Ready Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 15 – Translucent:
bareMinerals Ready Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is available in four shades – translucent, tan, dark and deep. I picked “Translucent” for my NC25 skin complexion. The packaging is practical and attractive. A leathery, black compact that closes tight and houses a full-sized mirror inside, along with a good quality sponge applicator. It is light and travel safe.
Moving on to the product texture, it is extremely fine and velvety soft. The application is soft without even the slightest crease or trace even when you go generously heavy with the powder. Nothing could be better than bareMinerals Ready Touch up Veil Broad Spectrum SPF-15 for an oily-skinned beauty. It is extremely lightweight on the skin, no matter how many times you layer it on. It never looks cakey or ghostly.
The shade is so perfect, it doesn’t make me look powdery white or pale ever. The oil control factor is amazing and my t-zone (which has an active oil factory inside) stays shine-free all day long (say 8 hours) without blotting or touch ups. It blends in perfectly without creasing; just make sure to moisturise well if you have dry patches.
bareMinerals Ready Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 15 gives good coverage against medium level imperfections like freckles, scars, zits and blemishes. It is formulated without parabens, sulfate, synthetic dyes, fragrances, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs and Triclosan. Therefore, it is suitable even for sensitive skin type without worrying about it irritating the skin or causing breakouts. The ingredients list and product description mentions some heavy words like grape seed oil, deep sea minerals, etc., that claim to have anti-ageing properties, but I would ask you to forget about that. The product performance is convincing enough to make it a staple in your vanity.
